His teacher, Julia Lvovna Vorontsova noticed his keen interest in programming and invited him to attend the Computer Science Olympiad of the Northwestern District of Moscow, where he took fourth place, which qualified him for the Moscow programming Olympiad. At that same Moscow programming olympiad in 1997, Petr took sixth place. He participated in six Russian National programming olympiads for high school students, and won three of them – in 2000, 2001 and 2002.[citation needed] He also participated in six summer training camps and five winter training camps for the Russian IOI team.
